I am still going to look at it and the other project truck. But like zach told me today. If I buy this truck for 3 grand dump another 2k into it for suspension upgrade I might as well buy the front end from dixon bros for my truck.

BTW did I tell you we have a bender???? Can you say cage time for my truck hehe.


The more I look at it the more I dislike it. It looks like a tough truck, accua;lly it is a touch truck lol and it worked well. But for what I want to do to it I might as well dump it into my 04

Any joe blow with a welder could gusset that rear axle and add the shock tabs.

I think the 4 shocks are a little excessive and over bearing.

Hey man take a breather for a sec, no need to get aggressive, thats when the mods start coming out and hitting people with the ban hammer lol. 04 EDGE is just a dick, just ignore whatever he says.

ill just give it to him right back, since he obviously knows nothing of what hes talking about here

it just bugs me when people make assumptions with nothing to back them up

i wandered over here cause i like to talk about trucks, and i can share quite a bit of knowledge from my experience, and this is my 12th ranger, i had built the yellow one in my introduction thread few years back and then sold it, theres a before pic up there, and i built that truck like im doin this one, from the ground up, the only thing left stock on my truck will be the cab

I had a car like that. almost 40 MPG. Then I derbied it. Atleast I won more money then I paid for it 3 years before.

On a side note. That truck is a thing of the past. That suspension is from 95. I think its a great work of art from what they had 15 years ago. But it aint worth the money.

Like I said before, once I get the money saved I could prabably due my truck for around 7grand and womp all over that one

There is a 80's model ranger close to me that has a D44/9" setup, 33" tires with a 302 and a C4 that is actually done right, and he only wants $1500 for it. I wouldnt spend a dime on that truck!!
